Writing and Publishing

Writer's Digest   Writer's Digest is a wonderful resource for any writer including articles, books, on-line courses and webinars, forums, marketing info and lots of information on their various sites. Books can be obtained in ebook format and you can even subscribe to their whole vast library and read any of their books on-line on your PC or iPhone. Even without making any purchase you can learn a lot from their articles and newsletters.  If you don't know this site already you are definitely missing out - and no, we don't get a penny for this plug as they have no affiliate scheme.
